Are you asking yourself how it could possibly already be August? Yes, me too!
I quickly chronicled our July wanderings for my last two posts, because I knew that I was holding onto quiet days in August for opening up the treasure box that is my memories of The Camino de Santiago in June.
I can hardly contain my excitement about sharing The Way with you.
Monday will begin the gorging that is three to four posts a week about this very special pilgrimage. (Maybe consider subscribing if you want to see them all?)
By way of a teaser, I’m sharing the video that the talented folks at Macs Adventure put together from the footage we collected. We did our own videos along the way, but I love how this one captures the whole journey.
Until Monday, here are a few links I’ve been saving up all summer!
After a summer of playing/sleeping/frolicking, I needed this reminder of how to get back on track when you’re backsliding hard on a goal. BOOM!
Books! I’ve been off of social media for a month now and I am finding that I have soooo much more time to read. Here are a few books I’ve enjoyed.
I devoured the companion book to Harold Fry while on holiday, The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy. So beautiful!
Also I re-read Far From The Madding Crowd (free on the Kindle) after seeing and LOVING the movie. I have seen it three times now. I. Kid. You. Not.
Mary Polly and I both read The Penderwicks in Spring, the fourth in a most beloved series of books by Jeanne Birdsall. PRESH. They hold a special place in our heart because I read the first one aloud to our kids when Simon was still a wee baby.
I was so incredibly touched by the response to my post about my grandmother who we lost this summer. (Thank you!) If you enjoyed that post, you should definitely read this sweet piece my sister wrote about our dear Mama Polly.
That’s all for me friends. Have an incredible weekend!
